landscape & surfacing

Playground surfacing is a key component of any school playground and we can help guide you through the choices. From Mounds to Daily Miles surfacing can create additional avenues for all weather play in your school. Surfacing is also tactile and by using a variety of surfacing types you can improve the sensory appeal and aesthetic of your playground.

Frogwell Primary School

Super exited to see the New Secondary Playground being transformed for our learners, how lovely to see them enjoying their new outdoor area. The outdoors is a key learning and play environment for our learners. Being outside allows them to interact with their environment, greatly aiding their development. DBD met extremely short deadlines and the customer service was excellent.
